Inside Lacrosse: Four candidates for men's lax job


There are four finalists to fill the men's lacrosse head coach position. Interviews are being conducted in the coming days. A decision could come by the end of the week.

All that from Inside Lacrosse, which reported this afternoon that "numerous sources" in the lacrosse world are suggesting Director of Athletics Gary Walters '67 has narrowed the list of folks he's considering to replace Bill Tierney.

Who are the four? Looking above (from left to right): Army coach Joe Alberici, Haverford coach Mike Murphy, Drexel coach Chris Bates and LeMoyne coach Dan Sheehan.

Haverford may be Division III and LeMoyne Division II, but the experts say it's not unusual for Walters to hire a head coach who's never held the top spot at a Division I school. In fact, he's done it 14 times.

Tierney announced June 8 he was leaving Princeton to become head coach at the University of Denver. Just over a week later on June 16, associate head coach Dan Metzbower announced he was turning down the head coach position and would also leave the program.

Stay tuned as the 'Prince' does it's best to break the news here.
